Scotland give New Zealand Murrayfield scare but come up short

Incredibly entertaining game to watch! Best bits include; Rich giving away the interception, penalties and knocking on, Finn & co double teaming Dan Carter and someone else to spill the ball, Sean Lamont fending a man to the ground every time he ran with the ball, (not specifically sure who it was, may also be Lamont or Seymour) a Scotland player tackling Savea BY HIMSELF and then stripping him of the ball and of course Hogg's Savea squat flip! Immense game from Scotland, they surely won't be taking the wooden spoon in the 6 Nations playing like this!

Referee decisions in spotlight as New Zealand prove too good for England

I get the gist of this for the Wales vs Scotland match, yes ref awarded a yellow for the late charge, but then the replay showed that Hoggs shoulder makes contact with the Welsh players chin (and it obviously looks worse in slowmo) so its worthy of a red. Seeing the assumed body barge become a shoulder vs face match influenced the ref to make it a red. I assume you're saying it's bias that the replay was shown but when plays stopped and there are thousands of fans watching why wouldn't you show the action that has stopped the match? Even if it is a bias move to show the crowd so they can influence the decision it is still up to the ref and officials to make that decision and use the laws of the game to decide.

The other centre is Brad Barritt, who 'predictably' can only run crash ball and tackle hard (although Savea contradicts that statement when he bumped him off head over heel!), so effectively Tuilagi minus offloading and agility. Yes very predictable. Desperately needs to run better angles into opposition and perhaps a man on the shoulder for a little offload, could release Eastmond.

To most of us, it does seem to be quite moany but it's by the by. Forgive my ignorance bud, the details are sketchy to a non-Maori like me but you must surely understand my point that it's a response, not just total disrespect. And there's no need for us to whinge about Mccaw, since he got caught and gave away a few penalties in helpful locations! However. Irrelevant. It wasn't a close match in reality. The AB kicking was poor and the score doesn't reflect the game. Think there's lots of be done in the next year but Eng are on the right track for next year, considering the team isn't set and there's young blood being tested all the time, it will be close next year in the final!

On a note that's about the rugby more than KIG, Scotland had an IMMENSE 60 minutes! Absolutely flabbergasted that Jim Hamilton still gets a game, the only thing the man gives is penalties to the other side. 3 minutes of game time before being sinbinned! Surely a tired Richie Gray is preferable to a fresh Hamilton any day and anytime, especially now Gray's exploding out of his (rather large) shell. Hammie's been playing for Scotland for years so if he is actually doing something worthwhile (other than scrapping with opposition and turning up) someone tell me as I haven't seen it!

Sorry Kiwidansallemand, disagree, love watching the AB's trounce poor sides, but you're the one moaning about how your team reacted and was treated when it was actually challenged.
Regarding 'Swing Low' through the haka have a read of this, see what you think, http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/rugbyunion/international/newzealand/11210139/All-Blacks-haka-is-for-all-its-vibrancy-as-a-spectacle-scarcely-more-than-a-circus-display-these-days.html there's legitimacy to the argument that a stadium of supporters can sing a song at the same time and as a response to the AB's threatening Maori death on their team, although I concur it makes it less of a spectacle from the sofa.
End of the day pal, there's little need for the negativity you effuse here when in the end, the rugby will always do the talking and the reffing was the same for both sides. Nigel Owens is an exceptional ref. Nuff said.

Record crowd witnesses All Blacks in full flight as they crush USA

Great show of the AB's skill. commentating was jokes, all 'hits' and 'channels' followed by statistics of players weights and heights! That's the only way you'll draw in the American football fans so of course it won't be the same as commentating as we know it!
